Qualification Details

You must have a two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree.

In many inverse problems, we need to go beyond Gaussian priors in order to handle more advanced spatial correlations. This PhD position will focus on handling inverse problems with Besov priors. In the CUQI platform we will use Besov priors that are suited for producing piecewise smooth reconstructions and for detection of edges and interfaces. This involves the use of linear combinations of wavelets/frames with random coefficients. This project requires knowledge of functional analysis and numerical computation and, preferably, harmonic analysis. Moreover, experience with inverse problems or Bayesian inference will be a plus.

Responsibilities/Job Description

You will be part of a large team consisting of experts in many areas of inverse problems and scientific computing. Together with the team, you will contribute to the project’s goal by developing theory and computational methods that can handle the challenges we face in developing a versatile platform.
